Sir Wilfrid Laurinr reached here this af- ternoon in the course of his final tour u! French Canada. The fierce manner in which the campaign is being car- ried on in this province can he Judg- ed from tho strong outburst to which the Premier gave vent in the .course of his speech. Taking ofi his hat and Tanking energetic gestures, he cried, "Never have T seen a campaign in Vhieh tin; tactics of the opposition were so insidious and dishonorable, hut thank God, I have strength enough, though I am on "the verge of sfvcniy years, to face them and fight 'them to the hitter end.

There was a fine showing of cattle, vegetables, grains, etc., ticularly so in ladioi' and children's Tbe majority of our 'business places closed their premises during the af- ternoon, a fact which helped to swell the crowd of spectators on the grounds. Fine sunny weather prevailed on Monday, which was fortunate for the fiuucess of the fair, as a great manj exhibits were placed on the grounds that day, and much preparatory work effected by those In charge. Although tlfene is still room for im provement in several ways, thii year's exhibition was in every sense eiiji-erior to nny that hns been helc here. To the of the so- ciety and more especially to the pre- ident, K, n, Jlarr, and secretary, J. Hanvood, unstinted praise is di: The last named worlcert like a trojan ind is a power In himself.

PRIM SCOTT DIAMOND CITY PEOPLE ARE ENTHUSIASTIC FOR THE PACT Miners' Hal] Crowded at Buchanan tling Good Speeches by Senator DeVeber, S. Shepherd and the Candidate- overthrowing I.aurier." Dr. the Lihcral candidate in the comity of Reauce, and lion. Chas. Devlin, also spoke. Dr. Beland is car- Tving on a very vigorous campaign, fbspite the fact, that he had a ma- joritv of af, the last election. In the past three weeks he has de- livered -sixty-six addresses. ACTIVITY OF RAILWAY WORK C.N.R. and G.T.P. Both Rushing Towards the City In the heat of the election campaign the citizens of Lethbridge seem to have forgotten what is being done n the railway world, and especial y in connection with what IB being one on' the lines which will nffeci -othbridge. There is not a person n the city who is not anxious to see Ins city the railway centre of South rn Alberta. They have been working o this end for many years, and the respects for a consummation, of lieir hopes seem to be'brighter at he present time than at any other the history of Lethbridge. They xpect to see the G. T. P. and C. N. R. running Into Lethbridge next ear, and it is 'hoped .that their ex- wctations will be realized. At tho present moment everything oints in this direction and these two ompanies are carrying on an cx- nsive construction campaign, and ethbridgo seeing to be one-of their win objective points. Both are caded toward Lethbridge from the north, and there is reason to believe that they will push construction from that end. But in so far as the C. N. R. is con corned it is likely that this company will reach Lethbridge from the eai (Wicker than from the north. While in Winnipeg B. A. Cunningham re ceived the assurance of M. J. HcLeod, of the C.

Lust night the Miners' Hall was packed, fully .175 peoplto being present, at the Buchan- an meeting. There not being seating accommodation sufficient for the crowd, many stood throughout the meeting. Great enthusiasm prevailed and is no doubt but what Dm- mond City will roll up a .big pro-reci- procity vote on September "1st. Dr. H. T.

Mr. Bu- chanan's speech was somewhat along the sair.'a lines as those of others that have been already reported and created an excellent impression. Senator DeVeber opened his speech which listened to, by relating the history of the reciprocity movement In Canada and told of his experiences under the old Elgin re- ciprocity treaty when the country en- joyed great prosperity. Dealing with Mr. Magratlt'K attitude toward labor, tiie Senator said that when lie (De Veber) introduced an eight hour law in the old territorial legislature, Ma- grath, representing the Gait Collier- les, went to Kegina and lobbied against, it, telling tho members that if the law came Into effect tiie price coal would go up 75 cents a ton. The amendment to DeVeber's bill was Introduced by R. B. Bennett and carried. The Senator discussed the amount of business done 'between Ca- nada and (lie United States. S. j. Shepherd was the concluding speaker and inad-a a rattling' good speech along the lines of his speech at Lethbridge some days ago. On life whole the meeting was an unnunlified success and the cause of reciprocity got a boost that will cer- tainly land it a winner in Diamond STEAMER WRECKED ON ALASKA COAST Seattle, Wash., Sent.
